Psychoeducational Decision Making, Test Scores, and Descriptive Data: Selected Methodological Issues.
Burns, Candace W.
Journal of School Psychology, v30 n1 p1-16 Spr 1992
Critically examines experiment by Algozzine and Ysseldyke (1981) that found school psychologists, teachers, and other professionals overrely on referrals and underuse test scores. Examines other experiments that contradict these findings. Compares subjects, test scores, and descriptive information that subjects in these experiments received. Presents two experiments that systematically vary "diagnosticity" of descriptive information and "usability" of test scores. (Author/NB)
